Can someone confirm that this is how A is better than C here?

C: refute the argument attributed to Korobkin in the second paragraph

The argument attributed to K in the second paragraph: Jackson's account fails to give due regard to the interests of other parties affected by a corporation's bankruptcy, such as suppliers, employees and their dependents, and the community at large

And the last paragraph is speaking about how K's argument fails to address some key issues. Is this why C is incorrect? The last paragraph doesn't directly refute K's argument regarding Jackson but rather just takes specific aim at K's argument (outlined in P 3, making answer A not correct?)

This just seems like a subtle subject-shift - thanks!

Hi, Alyssa!

Your analysis is correct. Korobkin's view in the second paragraph functions as a rebuttal to Jackson's approach.

The final paragraph is not a refutation of this rebuttal as answer choice (C) suggests.

Rather, the final paragraph directly addresses Korobkin's approach, namely the principles of inclusion and rational planning, outlined in the third paragraph. The final paragraph does not functionally jump back and respond to the second paragraph. Instead, it relates directly to the third paragraph.

Further, the final paragraph does not fully "refute" Korobkin's position but instead examines it critically, highlights some of its disadvantageous implications, and calls into question its practicability. This is broadly consistent with the credited response, answer choice (A).
